Saleh Barghouthi shot by Israel forces ‘point blank’ in ‘extrajudicial killing’

Israeli occupation forces shot Saleh Barghouthi “point blank” in an apparent “extrajudicial killing”, according to an investigation by human rights group B’Tselem.

The results of the investigation directly contradict the official version of events, B’Tselem added.

On 12 December 2018, two vehicles “blocked the path of a taxi driving along the main road of Surda, a Palestinian village in Ramallah District” – “driving the taxi was Saleh Barghouthi, 28, husband and father of a 5-year-old boy from the village of Kobar, which lies north of Ramallah”.

Around ten members of various Israeli units exited the vehicles, “surrounded the taxi and shot Barghouthi point-blank”; they then pulled “the wounded Barghouhti out of the taxi, handcuffed him and drove away with him”.
